Ebury’s Mass Payments division expands footprint by adding Dubai to its network of offices in  global financial centres, such as London and Singapore  

Ebury builds on its payments software offering in the region to seize the huge opportunity that  exists in the UAE 

Commitment to customer service, dynamic tech platform and scalable network sets Ebury  apart from traditional mass payments providers 

Ebury, a leading global FinTech, has expanded its Mass Payments division into a  new geography by establishing a presence in the exciting UAE Market through the Dubai International  Financial Centre’s (DIFC) new Innovation Hub. 

Ebury’s Mass Payments division provides software solutions to corporate clients as a long-term strategic partner. It is dedicated to delivering a market-leading mass payments service in the region,  supporting clients with its responsive platform and outstanding customer service.  

Ebury’s global presence and network of banking partners gives companies access to a robust payments service in all countries and currencies. Ebury’s innovative tech platform also allows payments to be made quickly and securely with pre-verification of bank details ensuring payments are delivered in full and on-time. 

Mercans, one of Ebury’s global clients, commented: "Having worked with Ebury for the last 5 years,  we have always been impressed with their ability to deliver our payments on time and in full which is  critical in the world of payroll. Having Ebury as our payments partner has enabled us to offer a high  level of service to our clients across the gulf region and efficiently scale as we expanded in Africa and  across Europe." 

The UAE is fast becoming a global FinTech hub, which Ebury chose for its newest Mass Payments location due to the increase in digitalization and openness towards innovative payment solutions. It builds on Ebury’s existing presence in the area, demonstrates commitment to scaling up in DIFC and allows Ebury to serve its existing UAE clients better. 

In December 2020, Ebury became the first financial services company to be granted a financial services licence to carry out the regulated activity of providing Money Services from DIFC. 

Ebury’s commitment to the UAE reflects the region’s attractive growth and performance through the  pandemic, which has seen it continue to attract substantial foreign direct investment. DIFC is the  region’s largest financial services ecosystem and its Innovation Hub, which was inaugurated last  month, has already attracted global leaders like Ebury and Amazon. 

Owain Walters, Managing Director of Ebury Mass Payments, commented: “We are delighted to  launch our Mass Payments service into a new geography and bring our capabilities to an increasingly  global client-base. 

“The UAE represents a great opportunity to expand our Mass Payments services with government  support and competition growing for digital payments. Ebury’s commitment to customer service and  responsiveness alongside its innovative technology such as one-touch portals offer a compelling new  option for businesses making mass payments in the region.”

Salmaan Jaffery, Chief Business Development Officer at DIFC Authority, commented: “Ebury’s  commitment to strengthening its presence and widening its range of services in DIFC is a testament  to the great opportunity that innovative, global companies see in the region. We are focused on  solidifying Dubai's position as a global business destination by providing an environment that meets  the highest international standards, as we seek to accelerate the implementation of innovative  initiatives in the field of FinTech. 

“We are pleased to see leading international FinTechs such as Ebury selecting the DIFC when looking  to expand globally, and it demonstrates the immense potential for growth and investment in Dubai’s  financial services market.”
